Core Gospel values motivate and inform our ministries. Rooted in the life and teachings of Jesus, St. Francis, St. Clare of Assisi, and Mother Francis Bachmann, these values stand as both inspiration and challenge to our sponsored ministries.

Personhood in Community:

The fullness of each person is realized in community and relationships.

Ongoing Conversion:

The capacity and continual call to develop right relationships with ourselves, God, one another, and creation.

Loving Service:

Service motivated by love and compassion; love expressing itself in service.


The care, reverence, and appropriate use of all that has been entrusted to us based on the conviction that all is gift.

Witness to Justice, Peace, and Reconciliation:

Attitudes and actions that flow from our belief in the fundamental relationship that exists among all of creation.
